Help! I’ve completed my sitter registration but still haven’t received my SMS verification code – SMS verification codes take about 2 minutes to send. Check if you have mobile signal in your area as this may cause the delay. Double check if you have missed anything in the registration process. Go to your sitter profile and click on “resend verification code”. If this still doesn’t work, contact us and we’ll resend your code.

I’ve signed up as a sitter but cannot view my profile – Once you have completed and published your sitter profile, only verified home owners that are logged in to their home owner accounts can see your profile.  This is to protect your information and help us ensure that only verified members of Aussie Pet and Home Minders can contact each other.

Why can’t I apply for house sitting jobs even if I have completed my sitter registration? – Only verified Silver and Platinum subscriptions are allowed to apply to house sitting ads. Bronze (Free) subscriptions are only allowed to reply to house sitting jobs that home owners contacted them for.  Please visit our Sitters Packages page for more detailed information on our sitter memberships.
